    Hello all, since update to Android Pie, I cannot pair neither connect to Xiaomi mi band 3 which I has. Before I had updated to the Pie, it was all good but after that my mi band couldn't connect and it says something like it couldn't be connected. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? Thank you.

    Unpair the device from your mi fit app, Unpair it from your bluetooth settings.. Then pair it again through your mi fit app...

    I can't reconnect, I restarted my phone, bluetooth, unpaired from the app and bt settings, restart the app and checked all permission to see if them was granted (of course).

    It still won't pair again, the MiFit app start searching for the band and then timeout without success

    @argaar Have you solved? I've turned off and on bluetooth, removed pairing with mi band 3 from settings, rebooted several times but for me it didn't worked. :-(
    Thanks, bye

    Yes, I used to have both "MiFit" and "Notify & Fitness for MiBand" and I just noticed the last one can estabilish a connection sometimes. So I make a backup of my settings and uninstall it (force stop wasn't enough), reboot the phone and the miband (keep the Button pressed/touched for at least 10s).
    When the phone restarted I looked in bt settings just to be sure there was no evidence of previous device, and perform the pairing from the official MiFit app

    The reason for previous failure was probably to be addressed to Notify&fitness that retains a sort of "Lock" on miband

    @argaar I use app "Notify & Fitness for MiBand" for everything and Mi Fit just for updates. Unistalling Mi Fit and just re-pairing "Notify & Fitness for MiBand" with MiBand 3 worked perfectly also for me!!!
    Thanks! Bye!

    Another solution might be to go to your apps, search mi app, storage, clear cashe and or clear storage. Go to mi app and login/ approve the permissions. Should work again. Had the same problem with not connecting.

    Edit: typo

    Why should they clear cash?? Is this some sort of money laundering???
    And why post in two week old thread??? They already have the problem solved..

    What i do to reconnect is, i go into bluetooth settings of the phone and then forget the mi band 3. Then i go back to notify and fitness app and just hit re-pair band and it gets connected instantaneously no need to uninstall/reboot.
    P.S - I only use notify and fitness app.

    Today after updating the miBand 3/mifit my son accidentally pressed something on miBand 3 which unpaired the device from the app. I was then unable to repair it , tried turning Bluetooth off/ on etc and finally told the iPhone to forget the device.
    I have since reset the network settings of the iPhone but the Bluetooth is still unable to find the fitness band. Unfortunately all the relevant forums state that you need to turn off and then back on the device but miBand 3 does not have such an option.
    I have also uninstalled and reinstalled mifit but that did not work either
    So now I have two problems.
    First I need to see the band in my Bluetooth settings so I can re-pair them there then I need to do the same in mifit app which I was unable to do so before.
    Any suggestions?

    I am using OnePlus 5t 8gb version, now i am buying MI band 3 and connect with OnePlus all are working well. Except the band didn't show incoming caller name and number. I will connect another phone model is vivo v11 pro. In that vivo mobile it shows caller name and number. What is the problem.
